Five Benefits to Having a Second Child
After having a fast and furious natural child birth ( 3 hours from start to finish) I was convinced I would never ever have a second child. Of course right around the time those baby faced cheeks started to lengthen in the toddler years I realized that in fact I was ready for baby number two. I loved being a momma, and I really wanted a sibling for my little girl, but i had tremendous doubts- how could I ever love another as much as I loved her? Would having another be a mistake? Here's five things I've learned about the benefits of expanding my family.
- The expandable heart : just as having your first child made you realize what true love was really about, your second child makes you realize just how expandable the human heart really is. Each child is so very unique from the other and each one has a room of their own in your heart.
- Sibling love: Siblings have an incredibly special bond. When I watch my children together each day I feel such a deep satisfaction
